This book was written mostly in calendar year 2008 either before the Death Magnetic album had been released or after it was released but before we had heard it. It reflects the anger and betrayal many fans of our generation, who had supported Metallica since Ride the Lightning days or even earlier, felt because of the Napster incident of 2000-2001 and the abysmal St. Anger album of 2003. We don?t have this level of anger towards the band anymore. Maybe writing the article (as it was then) was a cathartic process. We admit that it was somewhat enjoyable bashing a certain Lars Ulrich over the head with a weighty copy of Karl Marx?s 1,100 page opus Capital Volume 1. Like Marx?s Capital, our book was a product of its time. Please enjoy this book because it reflects the (sometimes unsaintly) anger towards Metallica which many older fans of the band were feeling in that time between the releases of St. Anger in 2003 and Death Magnetic in 2008.
